HEART AND MUSCLES (AND BONES)
There’s nothing to compare with the Superclass 1.2L VVT 12-valve. Open the hood, it lifts by itself thanks to the gas spring strut, and you will discover a 100% brand new technology.
The 1.2 Litre, 3-cylinder 4-stroke engine, with an incredible flat-curve torque from the low-end to the high-end, is the ideal power-train for the Superclass. This is achieved thanks to the 12-valves with Variable Valve Timing working in conjunction with the state-of-the-art engine management computer. Smooth running and with good fuel economy, the engine is complete with catalytic converter and dual oxygen sensors in conformity to Euro-5 road emissions. With a huge radiator and fitted with a powerful two-speed electric fan, the cooling system can handle any condition. The twist-grip control communicates (fly by wire) to the intelligent throttle the requested power, while the automatic transmission self-adapts to the load condition, no matter if you are pulling a huge load or if you just want to dart out into the powder. The new generation transmission, with Hi-Lo ranges, plus Neutral and Reverse, has a smooth and precise shifting. Designed for maximum strength, with an all gear power train (chain-less), it is the only snowmobile transmission with pressure lubrication via a mechanical pump. Thanks to the low-inertia of the power train, the Superclass 1.2L VVT 12-valve boasts a greater acceleration. The oversized brake disc rotor is controlled by powerful hydraulic and mechanical calipers, derived from the Sherpa series; even on the steepest slopes full control is assured. The well balanced output drive-shafts spin noiselessly and without vibrations. In addition to the high comfort offered by the special nitrogen gas cartridge mono-shock absorbers, the new exclusive Alpina Track Suspension 3, introduces a new feature unknown on any other existing snowmobile; that is the track's variable angle of attack. Thanks to this innovation, the suspension self-adapts to any type of snow and surface, always offering the optimum traction and control. And all this abundance of technology is built onto the new revolutionary steel frame designed for the Superclass 1.2L VVT 12-valve, featuring a reduced weight and an incredible torsional strength.
